You'll want to trim the spats and shind down so that they don't pinch together. The way you have them now you're asking for either a broken ankle or some serious armour bite

That's what I was thinking too. The little bit I did walk around they were hitting together. My spats are pretty big right now . I will trim them and maybe the when armor too after I trim the spats. Thanks for the input.

Ok I have been busy the last week or so painting and making the back plate. For the back plate I started with a TK back plate and cut out the 0 II part and extended it a little.

The back plate is now all primed and waiting for paint. It has been too humid the last few days to paint.

Here is the painting I have gotten done recently. The shoulders, chest, spats, and shins.

I also started to put some snap plates in for the internal strapping.

The last thing I was able to do was strap up one of the shins. I think it came out pretty good so far.

So I was able to strap up both legs.

I was then able to strap up the rest and suit up. I am pretty satisfied with most of it. There are a few things I can fix up a bit. The belt was a little off center which threw the kama a bit off. I have a bit too much padding at the top of my helmet which makes it sit a little high. So how's it looking??

I also go the last parts I needed for my saber pike, so I will start that build next.

Let me know what you think :trsuit:

The flightsuit is looking very baggy. It should be a tighter fit and not bunch up like it is now. The back plate is also still clearly showing the groove marks and could stand for more filling and sanding....

The flight suit I can fix pretty easy. I will put some stirrups on the legs to keep them from riding up and bunching at the top of the boot. I will do something similar with the sleeves to keep them from bunching when I put the forearms on.

The back plate it a little more tricky. Its a little hard to tell from the pictures, but they are smooth with no holes or lines, its just that its not entirely flat. So this makes it looks not smooth. I basically have 2 options for that, cut it apart again and use more panels so it lays flatter or try to find someone selling a backplate.

Please have a look at your spats too.
They should be go from the ground over the boot to the ground.
Like in the pictures of the model.
